officers should have guns, and she said her training kicked in. i bet you guys looked long and hard for a story like that. but the one you saw doesn't do any damage to the pro-gun argument, bank ecause it was a police officer, they don't argue that a police officer should not be armed. the second one is the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> it is interesting, there were others e-mailing us, saying we were afraid to tell that story, because they point to us as a sign that people being armed is a good idea, kind of to address the theories. you actually say there is more common ground and the thing that is the president could do that the nra would actually give thumbs up to t. what do you see? >> the truth is i'm much less interested in the politics than the policies that can come from it. the president has taken flak for not doing enough on gun control. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been
in. i bet you guys looked long and hard for a story like that butt one you found was actually one that i don't think does any damage to the pro-gun control argument because it was a police officer. i don't think anyone's arguing police officers, perhaps even off duty police officers shouldn't be armed. the second one seems to be much more like the actual situation you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around trying to play vigilante. >> we picked that story because there are all these conspiracy theorists e-mailing us saying we were afraid to tell that story because they point to that story as a sign or indication of people being armed is a good idea. you say there's more common ground and things that the president could do by executive order that the nra would give a thumbs up to. what do you see? >> i'm much more interested less in the politics of tomorrow than the policies and common ground that can come from it. the president has taken a lot of flak from people like mayor bloomberg for not doing enough on gun control in his administration. there are things
? >> you know, i long made it a practice never to bet on hillary clinton. although i would never bet against her. so, i think you know, there are millions of americans including me who are very much hoping that she gets enough rest and feels good about having a political career and runs for president, but she's xwt a lot of options. and you know, she needs to look no further than her husband to find another really good option. i think president bill clinton has really led the way as a role model for having a really effective and important life with a big impact on the world, a good impact on the world without elected office. and so she's got options. >> she certainly does. i want to ask you and switch gears a little bit, the inauguration coming up. there has been pushback against the president for not having enough diversity in his cabinet in his second term. jane fonda, gloria steinham are asking him to appoint a woman to head up the fcc. what do you make of this. >> nobody's a bigger fan of gloria and jane fonda than i am. he hasn't indicated he's going anywhere. people need to giv
viewer, right? >> it's a little more complicated, but so much money has been lost betting interest rates, traditional methods of shorting bond futures, shorting rates, that it makes sense to look at small strategy ta gives you a lot of staying power. >> wa about converts or junk? >> yeah, high yield. >> interesting with interest rates going up, doesn't necessarily mean junk yields would go up. you would think if interest rates are going up, ultimately, it's been corroborate with a strong economy which tends to be a good environment for higher yield debt as the stronger economy would still translate to lower defaults and better credit in general. so i wouldn't say that betting on higher corporate yields, particularly higher junk or high yield rates is the best way to bet on interest rates. >> what could we look for for a total return for the next couple of years if we did everything right? >> on the upon side? >> yeah. >> you're still probably looking for total returns in the mid single digits, which would include a coupon that you're getting. >> you think equities could be okay, though?
guantanemo. and i am going to bet that there are some enhanced interrogation techniques going on in guantanemo. and i'm going to make a second bet, they are being made by who's, the cia. i don't have a problem with that, by the way. but that i think is going on. >> well, we're also not going to find out about what exactly happened guantanemo because another broken executive promise is -- >> you want increased terrorism in spice and guantanemo? i want opaqueness. i don't want to know what's going on. >> i want more killer robots in the skies raining down. >> the droneman. the drones can't get you to talk. keith boynkin, kathryn mangeward and jim pethakukus. >>> the dow up 53 points today. hot stocks. we're talking ford and facebook. they led the way. even with the mess in washington. i'm kind of still leaning bullish on this whole story. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you turn an entrepreneur's dream... ♪ into a scooter that talks to the cloud? ♪ or turn 30-million artifacts... ♪ into a high-tech masterpiece? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology an
ago sprint was speculation, you bought the stock and betting the company would be able to turn around its business, clean up the balance sheet, or best of all, a takeover bid. and if you made that bet, it paid off big time under hesse's leadership, they have pulled off a fabulous turn around. got the hands on apple's iphone. it improved the balance sheet. then in october, something incredible happened. the big japanese tech firm announced it would invest $20 billion to get a 70% stake in sprint with the company paying $7.30 in cash upfront for 55% of sprint's outstanding shares. the soft bank deal was the catalyst we've been waiting for. thanks to this transaction, sprint will become a well-capitalized company that can truly compete against the likes of at&t and verizon. however, the soft bank deal also means a major part of the thesis has played out, man. come on, ca-ching ca-ching for somebody. sprint already caught a bid, it's not going to get another one. in other words, the reason for the stock's epic rally in 2012 are not going to repeat themselves in 2013. plus the story has so
of time to get a lead candidate, but they may have multiple lead candidates. and betting on the right one to go through the process is critical. it's a really big responsibility we have. we take it seriously. we enjoy the work, it's quite complex. but the drug companies have really honed down their pipelines. and as i said a moment ago, use smaller biotech companies as their discovery engines. and i think that's one of the reasons we saw more drugs be approved by the fda in 2012 than the prior year because they're much more focused than they used to be. the indications are much harder, the mechanism of action of the diseases is much more complicated. they're really honing in on the drugs that have the best potential to get to market. >> i think you save the system a lot of money. at the same time you do have government business. the government is trying to figure out what they should cut back. there's a lot of shortsighted things that would be cut back if we just went over the usual cliff. are you concerned about the government side of your business because it seems washington's run amuck
over and over were real estate, wall street making a big bet on real estate. i like it, i think it's a good bet, and also the multi-nationals. like what's happening as far as the materials stocks go. look at that for a good entry point as i do think we go into a period of consolidation. >> those dividend payers are certainly breathing a sigh of relief given where the law ended up on that fiscal cliff deal. let me ask you, bill. small caps versus large caps. do you need the large caps to go up in order for the small caps that you own to follow suit, or do you think the small caps can do well regardless? >> i think small caps will do well regardless. i do think, you think about the big themes for 2013 that we expect to do well. talking about the industrials. hopefully tech getting better. these are areas where the big companies may be hard to get bigger but for the small companies they can do extremely well. one other point that was earningsed earlier about ipos. there is supply demand and balance here. as money comes back from bonds and other areas into the equity market, there isn'
and some areas of consumer discretionaries. there may not be as much pop off the bet there but looking at global credit markets as well, adding to that yield advantage that may be available there, but you'll have to pick better stocks and better bonds. >> kenny, what are you seeing? >> i'm seeing, maria, that we've hit the top. struggled with 1472. it is a high and feels bullish but in the short term we're going to hit some resistance here. i would suspect the market will back off. a couple of issues in front of us at the end of the month. i suspect if there's any sense at all that they are not going to compromise or negotiate you'll see the market come right back in. that being said i would use that, any weakness opportunity to jump right back in because i do think my sense is that the market wants to go higher this year, want to go higher this year. our economy is stabilizing. economies around the world are stabilizing so i think it's a good year. >> where are you seeing the conviction on the buy side? what sectors? >> i still think, you know, obviously financials in housing are basi
on your own. in michigan, they appear to be warming up. my bet for actually doing this thing that most of republican america is too embarrassed to go ahead with. not like the other states anymore. what doesn't work there they think work there. so what if the silverdome roof is tattered. or if they are too embarrassed to turn democracy into another fist? does even an avalanche of public shaming embarrass republicans? do they get embarrassed or do they just move on with it? now we are about to find out how much of a honey badger michigan republicans really are. and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit.

that police officers should have guns and she said her training kicked in. i bet you looked long and hard for a story like at. it was a police officer. i don't think anyone is arguing that police officers shouldn't be armed. the second one seems to be more like the actual situation that you get when you have lots and lots of individuals running around playing vigilante. >> there were those that said we were afraid to tell that story because they point to that as a sign of people being arm sunday a go armed is a good idea. you say there is more common ground and things that the president could do by executive order that the nra would give a thumbs up to. >> it may sound shocking. i'm less interested in the politics in tomorrow. the president has taken flack from people like mayor bloomberg. but there are things like enforcement. 77,000 people have lied on criminal background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi and not prosecuted by the department of justice. and there are also the national instant criminal background check mechanism is no
as many parents, and it just won't. smart investors are making a bet they can't wait for the third of the three washington incursions to be finished. once a big bad event is passed, the rick of responding floods in. now we're about to finish the third leg of the political steeplechase, and we will be given a level of certainty. you want to wait for those people to come in? it could be investing nirvana, a guy in brooklyn, cramer, smart guy. scared us with the election, scared us with the fiscal cliff and now scaring us with the debt ceiling. what are you going to scare us with about washington after that's over and you faked everyone out and got them to sell? i rolled my eyes, i defended myself, saying all three of threes issues are and are worthy of worry and i told people to stay the course, like he could care. he said, again, what washington horror story are you going to gin up, cramer? and i said impact on spending of higher taxes, coming affordable care act, instead i said wisely no, that's it. maybe it would be good if you focused on the stock market again. ouch! but it did g
. >> right, and so chris christie, you would have to bet on, out of all the potential field we know about right now is the guy who is more likely to come out with that punch, that swing, in a debate that really does excite an audience. >> and i've always said that is the key to chris christie in the off-the-cuff, he is better than reading from text. i never thought with the republican base that he has a problem with immigration. because if it comes up in a debate, if he is running for national office and it comes up, he has a way of reframing it and resetting it. people say i like him, i want to be with him, he has given me something to work with. now i will rationalize why it works, he has that personality that makes a lot of republicans want to be with him and rationalize back wards to get with him. into his camp. that is a skill that i don't see any other national republican right now -- >> most importantly, there is a candidate that most republicans can back. krystal ball, and steve kornacki, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >>> and coming up. start thinking about what you will
. who doesn't? elizabeth warren said this on the issue. aig's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin. and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough. steve. >> so i agree with elizabeth warren who's completely right. >> that's all i need to hear. you just made my morning. >> january 9th of the new session. >> check right there. >> it's amazing what a victory does. >> come on. >> something about 1,000 fathers and orphans. >> something like that. something like that. so i'm curious, mika. i'm reading "the new york times," as i do every morning. >> oh, yes. >> and i'm hurt. i am hurt because you always told me, and this is why, of course, i was hopeful even though mitt romney lost, that the next four years would be better because you said barack obama cares about women so much. >> yeah. >> and i thought he did. but obama's remade inner circle has an all-male look so far. you look at -- you look at barack obama's inner circle, and you lo
of track. ending net investment, i didn't hear that. i bet it was around 4.20. they were over 600 back in 2007 or '8. so this is a really good number, joe. a little surprising after the december 17th analyst meeting, which was, you know, they brought expectations down a little bit. >> yeah. mark. that's what i was talking about. that is where jeff was talking about the fiscal cliff, wasn't he? >> yeah, yeah, he was. and, you know, expectations since the last time you and i were sitting here have gone from 47 cents to 43. so they beat at 44. but still three cents below what the street was looking for 90 days ago. >> i'm trying to remember, you know, it's molded together. when was the last dividend hike? >> third quarter of last year, joe. >> third quarter? >> yeah. >> of 2012. >> yeah. >> okay. so they usually do it in the third quarter. so we're not looking for another hike. it's yielding about 3.6%. and it is indicated up a little bit today. so as far as the outlook, what are we looking for for the company to say about the rest of the year? >> you know, i think the outlook has improve
to say take a shot, but they come back time and time again. you bet against novak. howard schulz at the 48, 49 level for starbucks. at the same time, yes, it's absolutely true. this is a china play. so you want china to be hitting on all cylinders and not falling double digits. >> amazing this morning how quickly you see a yum, say, tweet or headline, and how quickly the conversation turns to a nike or other companies who are heavily relying on that country. is the situation comparable or not? >> the last nike quarter looked a little better. north america has been very strong. nike has a new shoe coming out. i think you're absolutely right to worry about anything china. but i think that nike is a two-quarter phenomenon. yum is this quarter, and maybe next quarter or the quarter after. china is the big conundrum. because you have to think, well, wait a second, are they picking on american companies? are they picking on us? >> to what extent does that add the unpredictability of the chinese consumer increasing their spending, the idea that that could be fine, but we have to keep in
